Native Writers, Illustrators, Scholars, Activists... on Twitter

Do you have a Twitter account? Do you follow or want to follow Native writers, illustrators, scholars and activists?

Here's a list of people I follow! Some tweet a lot, some a little. Some tweet about books, some tweet about their nations, and some tweet about a wide range of topics.

The list started out as a list of Native writers or illustrators whose work has been discussed on AICL. It has evolved over time.  Reading the words of Native writers--regardless of what they write--can be of enormous help in understanding what Native people care about. There's a lot to learn from their fiction, prose, poetry, and their research articles, but from their tweets, too. I learn from them, and you can, too. Please help me build this list by adding names and account info in the comments.
